The interest of German writers and readers in the Western Hemisphere dates back to the earliest narratives of the transatlantic Encounter. One of the first Latin editions of the Columbus letter was printed at Basel in 1493, and a German translation appeared in print in 1497. By the late sixteenth century, German publishers were issuing American travel narratives in impressive series. The biological and mineral resources of the Americas had a substantial impact on German science, and the...

The John Carter Brown Library has one of the five largest collections of early Peruviana in the world. It is not just the number of Peruvian imprints of the colonial, independence, and early national periods held by the John Carter Brown Library that is important, however, but the diversity of those materials and in a great many instances, their singularity - being only known copies. The subjects range from ecclesiastical matters, to government papers, to indigenous language studies, and...

The first press in Argentina appeared in Córdoba in 1764, brought by the Jesuits to serve the University there. It lasted only until the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1767. It would not be until 1780 that printing in the viceroyalty of Rio de la Plata would begin again, this time in Buenos Aires. The JCB holds no fewer than 20 imprints from this press printed prior to 1791. During the wars of independence, the Buenos Aires press was the principal voice of the Republican forces, chiefly through...

While some ephemeral printing appeared in Chile at an earlier date, the first printing press arrived there fairly late, relative to other parts of Latin America. Towards the end of 1811, Mateo Hoevel imported a press from New York, and that press is seen as the first in Chile, producing Chile's first periodical, the Aurora de Chile. The JCB holds a complete run of this pioneering periodical, along with many other unique items. http://archive.org/details/jcbspanishamerica

The call to convent life drew women throughout the early modern Spanish world, from Madrid to Mexico City to Manila. For all the strictures that convents placed upon their inhabitants, they also gave women opportunities to pursue vocations of the spirit and of the mind. Within convent walls, Teresa of Ávila inaugurated her groundbreaking religious reform, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz composed some of the most ingenious poems in the Spanish language, and innumerable women wrote powerful accounts...

A press functioned briefly in Montevideo during the British occupation of 1807, issuing a bi-lingual newspaper titled Estrella del Sur. Yet, only with the eruption of the wars of independence did a press reappear in that city, printing mainly viceregal proclamations. The Infanta Carlota Joaquina, wife of Portugal's prince regent João VI, sent the press from Rio de Janeiro. The royalist publications coming from Montevideo's press sought to counter the Republican press of Buenos Aires....

Cuba was the first Caribbean island to have a press, begun in 1722 by Flemish merchant Carlos Habré of Ghent. Habré and his successor, Francisco José de Paula, printed only intermittently, and it was not until 1757 that the press began to function more regularly. Of the 29 items in this collection (as of 2012), fully half are only known copies found nowhere else in the world. http://archive.org/details/jcbspanishamerica
